Good evening all.

Wow what a sighting. I just teased a guest and said there is a leopard and 5 minutes later there was.

I know they had Mvula and a unknown female this morning toghter. I recon it is them not sure but think so.

lucky the guest had one more beer.

SALAXEYE

 

Leopards:
More great news! Salayexe has two beautiful cubs! They are around eight weeks old and are looking great. We first saw her cubs on the 25th when she killed an impala and then started contact calling. At first we thought that Tyson was in the area and that she was calling him, but then a small flash ran from the bush towards her and my heart almost jumped out of my ribcage! She has finally become a mother and after all the heartbreak, she can be very proud. I know that she will provide us with some fantastic sightings of the interaction between mother and cubs. We saw Tyson with her and her cubs on the 29th and I might be wrong, but to me even he looked proud to be the father. All the other females and cubs are in great condition and no males have lost any of their respective territories, so it is good news all around.

Special sighting:
This was definitely when Salayexe’s cubs came out of the bush running towards her. The look on our guests’ faces was nothing more than priceless!

Did you know?
The gestation period for a leopard is ninety days and females can give birth to up to three cubs at a time. Ninety nine percent of the time, only two cubs are born and sometimes only one will make it to adulthood.

Good evening cammers! How cool was that quick visit by Nchila! Haven't seen him in a while and it was about time he shows his face again. Glad to hear that you enjoy the photos that we share with you. Happy viewing!
